5 good reasons to go to Berlin
To see / do
Culture and history
An imposing cathedral
The Berliner Dom is an imposing Lutheran cathedral with a large dome. It was built fairly late (inaugurated in 1905) and is the symbol of an ostentatious monarchy. The cathedral holds a crypt in which the members of the Hohenzollern royal family lie.
A Rococo residence
The Charlottenburg Castle was the summer residence for Sophie-Charlotte of Hanover, Queen of Prussia. This ravishing palace with its Rococo style saw all its rooms newly renovated. Walking through the gardens will lead you to a mausoleum, a belvedere and an orangery.
The festive Gendarmenmarkt square
The Gendarmenmarkt is considered to be the prettiest square in Berlin, with its three majestic buildings. The French cathedral, the German cathedral and the Konzerthaus form a magnificent trio. During the summer, the square turns into an open-air concert hall. Make the most of a direct flight from Bordeaux to enjoy a lovely trip.
Party fever in Kreuzberg
Head to the festive area of Kreuzberg for some night-time fun! It is one of Berlin’s liveliest places, filled with restaurants, bars and concert halls. You can easily spend a whole evening in Kreuzberg. There is even some nice street art to admire.
Traditional food at Zur Haxe
Enjoy a lovely traditional German dinner at Zur Haxe. The typical setting is perfect for digging into the restaurant’s iconic pork knuckle dish. Served with sauerkraut and potatoes, this dish is tender and tasty. The starters and desserts are also delicious and served in a welcoming atmosphere.
The capital boasts a wide array ofimbiss (fast food kiosks). Germans love getting quick bites to eat. The gold medal goes to the currywurst! This sausage is boiled, fried and cut up. It is then covered in ketchup and curry, and served with chips. Give it a try thanks to the direct flight from Bordeaux.
”Ich bin ein Berliner”
One of the favourite pastries here in the capital holds the same name as its inhabitants, “berliner”. You have to take a big bite of this delicious doughnut to find out what’s in it. Each bakery has its own recipe - either cream or jam. Its rival, the standard doughnut with a hole in the middle, is also loved by all.
